The Shambles, York

An old street with overhanging timber-framed buildings,
some dating back as far as the fourteenth century.  It was
once known as The Great Flesh Shambles, probably from
the Anglo-Saxon Fleshammels (literally 'flesh-shelves'),
the word for the shelves that butchers used to display
their meat.  As recently as 1872 twenty-five butchers
shops were located along the street, but now none remain.
